Professional Development with Added Value
A summer professional development institute introduces middle school teachers to interdisciplinary work and development of local place-based units. Teachers learn to develop a common experience, use tools of inquiry for their own discipline, communicate their findings, and respect both disciplinary and shared interdisciplinary understanding. Teachers are more likely to use interdisciplinary teaching if they have time to plan together.
